Hearn told talkSPORT’s Dom McGuinness: “We’ve got the chance to host three big heavyweight nights over March, April and May/June.
“Derek Chisora against Oleksandr Usyk, which would be just a monstrous night for British boxing.
“Dillian Whyte against Alexander Povektin or Andy Ruiz.
“And Anthony Joshua against Kubrat Pulev. All three of those are scheduled for the UK.”
Hearn has previously stated that Usyk vs Chisora is being targeted for March 28 at the O2 Arena.
Whyte vs Povetkin would then follow this, with the likely dates being April 25 or May 2.
And finally Joshua vs Pulev is hoped to take place at a UK stadium on May 30 or June 6.
The promoter added: “Usyk vs Chisora is ready to go now in terms of completing the deal, or trying to complete the day.
“We know AJ’s fight is going to take place in May or June…
“If we’re going in London with AJ in May, we’re not gonna go to London end of April with Dillian, we’re gonna go to Manchester or America.
“It is a huge domino effect really and everything centres around Anthony Joshua.”
